Chmoding in IDE caused out of disc space


#1

I was trying to change permissions for one directory. I cmoded each directories in it according to my instructions using different permissions, that did not work - 403 error.

Then I decided to change permissions to 777 for whole directory recursively:

~/workspace/pset8: chmod 777 / -R

After I hit enter, hundreds of lines was appearing. Something like user/{long line of path}. At the end of each line was something like “Access denied”, thats why I think permissions did not eventually changed.

After 15-30 seconds everything stopped because disc space of IDE became totally full.

Now I see this message, and nothing work. Please help

There is no way to repair this workspace now, see Accidentally ran chmod 775 in root directory, out of disk space for the explanation.
